Okay, now this is just plain stupid.
KBS has revealed its official statement regarding group JYJ’s appearance in 2TV music program “Music Bank.”
Music Bank stated on the afternoon of the 19th, “because JYJ has not released new songs, they are not candidates for appearing in ‘Music Bank.’ On the topic of drama OSTs (T/N: Soundtracks), they are not candidates for appearances and [the singer] must officially release new songs to be considered as candidates.“
T/N: By the way, does anyone remember ss501’s “Because I’m Stupid” and Taeyeon’s “What if”? They were major hit songs from dramas (oh yes, they were part of drama OSTs. ss501’s song from the drama “Boys Over Flowers” and “What if” from the drama “Hong Gil Dong.” And guess what? BOTH singers appeared on KBS Music Bank and sang their hit songs from the DRAMA OSTs (and their songs, of course, were included in Music Bank’s K-Chart). Oh, and who can forget how KBS themselves counted JYJ’s “Found You” on their K-Chart, BEFORE the court’s decision on February 17th? KBS, are you seriously changing your own rules suddenly just to keep JYJ off the air and avoid admitting that you cower under these so-called major management companies of idol groups?
“Music Bank” replied, “before the decision was made on the lawsuit on February 17th, we excluded JYJ from appearing because it could have affected the lawsuit. Afterward, they weren’t candidates because they hadn’t released new songs, not because we specially regulated their appearance.”
Furthermore, they revealed “later if [JYJ] releases new songs and it’s a target for K-Chart, they may become candidates for appearing [in Music Bank].”
T/N: Oh, believe me KBS. We will hold you to that word… or embarrass you once more for your hypocrisy and stupidity in the process.
Meanwhile, on the 17th, KBS revealed, “because JYJ’s current lawsuit is still in progress, KBS is taking note of this lawsuit in the most objective point of view. Normally, if a celebrity that is in the middle of lawsuits or any other legal battle, it may have an affect on the suit in progress and it’s usual to refrain [such celebrity] from making appearances and wait for the result.”
Furthermore, they stated, “Though it appears that JYJ has submitted a request to nullify their exclusivity contract with their existing agency, they made their own judgment to temporarily participate in activities on a case-by-case basis. However, JYJ has signed with another agency and are currently continuing their album promotions under two contracts.”
JYJ, which is made of 3 people from the five-membered group DBSK, is currently undergoing a lawsuit on the issue of exclusive contract with their original management company SM Entertainment.
On this, President Beak Changjoo, who is currently in charge of JYJ’s actual management revealed, “The lawsuit about JYJ’s subordinate contract with SM Entertainment that KBS was referring to was already acknowledged by the court as lopsided and disadvantageous to JYJ, and the contract was subsequently nullified.”
Furthermore, he asserted, “In addition, last February, the invalidity of their contract with SME was emphasized once more as the court declared another order for SME to stop indirectly impeding on JYJ’s activities. With these being said, we believe KBS’s stance does not match up with the facts.”
T/N: HAHAHAHAHA. You make me laugh KBS. This is the best they could come up with, after erasing their nonsense statement released previously… and amazingly, they managed to come up with an even more idiotic official statement. How stupid do you think people are? I’m sorry, but most of us have memories that are better than that of a goldfish (but it’s quite obvious KBS doesn’t).
